The 2-33 was designed to succeed the 2-22 as something a little plusher and better performing, therby making it easier to attract new students into soaring. The prototype 2-33 first flew in 1965 and volume production began in 1967. For the best part of the following 20 years, 2-33’s were mainstays in U.S. glider pilot training. It has an all-metal wing structure and steel tube fuselage with moving tail surfaces covered in Ceconite fabric. The spoilers are aerodynamically balanced. The A model, introduced in 1968, has a larger rudder. Subsequent minor offered as an FAA-approved homebuilders kit. The U.S. Air Force Academy operates 13 as the TG-4A. ATC
